Atlas Model 55

The Atlas Model 55 gets its name from the stretch of highway between Chicago and Dallas. It’s inspirational to luthier John Guilford - the annual journey South to Dallas. Uniquely equipped with Jimmy Wallace Single Coil Pickups, this guitar is a blues rockers delight! The sound is richly expressive and beautifully nuanced at each of 5 Pickup selections. Notes are crisp and jump off with life from a perfectly set Action.
